2015-12-07rcu: Remove TINY_RCU bloat from pointless boot parametersPaul E. McKenney-0/+4
The rcu_expedited, rcu_normal, and rcu_normal_after_boot kernel boot parameters are pointless in the case of TINY_RCU because in that case synchronous grace periods, both expedited and normal, are no-ops. However, these three symbols contribute several hundred bytes of bloat. This commit therefore uses CPP directives to avoid compiling this code in TINY_RCU kernels.

2015-12-04rcu: Add rcu_normal kernel parameter to suppress expeditingPaul E. McKenney-2/+20
Although expedited grace periods can be quite useful, and although their OS jitter has been greatly reduced, they can still pose problems for extreme real-time workloads. This commit therefore adds a rcu_normal kernel boot parameter (which can also be manipulated via sysfs) to suppress expedited grace periods, that is, to treat requests for expedited grace periods as if they were requests for normal grace periods. If both rcu_expedited and rcu_normal are specified, rcu_normal wins. This means that if you are relying on expedited grace periods to speed up boot, you will want to specify rcu_expedited on the kernel command line, and then specify rcu_normal via sysfs once boot completes.

2015-09-10kexec: split kexec_load syscall from kexec core codeDave Young-3/+3
There are two kexec load syscalls, kexec_load another and kexec_file_load. kexec_file_load has been splited as kernel/kexec_file.c. In this patch I split kexec_load syscall code to kernel/kexec.c. And add a new kconfig option KEXEC_CORE, so we can disable kexec_load and use kexec_file_load only, or vice verse. The original requirement is from Ted Ts'o, he want kexec kernel signature being checked with CONFIG_KEXEC_VERIFY_SIG enabled. But kexec-tools use kexec_load syscall can bypass the checking. Vivek Goyal proposed to create a common kconfig option so user can compile in only one syscall for loading kexec kernel. KEXEC/KEXEC_FILE selects KEXEC_CORE so that old config files still work. Because there's general code need CONFIG_KEXEC_CORE, so I updated all the architecture Kconfig with a new option KEXEC_CORE, and let KEXEC selects KEXEC_CORE in arch Kconfig. Also updated general kernel code with to kexec_load syscall. [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style fixes] Signed-off-by: Dave Young <dyoung@redhat.com> Cc: Eric W.

2014-01-23kdump: fix exported size of vmcoreinfo noteVivek Goyal-1/+1
Right now we seem to be exporting the max data size contained inside vmcoreinfo note. But this does not include the size of meta data around vmcore info data. Like name of the note and starting and ending elf_note. I think user space expects total size and that size is put in PT_NOTE elf header. Things seem to be fine so far because we are not using vmcoreinfo note to the maximum capacity. But as it starts filling up, to capacity, at some point of time, problem will be visible. I don't think user space will be broken with this change. So there is no need to introduce vmcoreinfo2. This change is safe and backward compatible. More explanation on why this change is safe is below. vmcoreinfo contains information about kernel which user space needs to know to do things like filtering. For example, various kernel config options or information about size or offset of some data structures etc. All this information is commmunicated to user space with an ELF note present in ELF /proc/vmcore file. Currently vmcoreinfo data size is 4096. With some elf note meta data around it, actual size is 4132 bytes. But we are using barely 25% of that size. Rest is empty. So even if we tell user space that size of ELf note is 4096 and not 4132, nothing will be broken becase after around 1000 bytes, everything is zero anyway. But once we start filling up the note to the capacity, and not report the full size of note, bad things will start happening. Either some data will be lost or tools will be confused that they did not fine the zero note at the end. So I think this change is safe and should not break existing tools.

These commits were posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/724. 2. Changes to SRCU that allows statically initialized srcu_struct structures.

Additional CPU-hotplug/RCU improvements, posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/327. Note that the commit eliminating __stop_machine() was judged to be too-high of risk, so is deferred to 3.9. 5. Changes to RCU's idle interface, most notably a new module parameter that redirects normal grace-period operations to their expedited equivalents. These were posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/739. 6. Additional diagnostics for RCU's CPU stall warning facility, posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/315.

2012-10-23rcu: Add a module parameter to force use of expedited RCU primitivesAntti P Miettinen-0/+18
There have been some embedded applications that would benefit from use of expedited grace-period primitives. In some ways, this is similar to synchronize_net() doing either a normal or an expedited grace period depending on lock state, but with control outside of the kernel. This commit therefore adds rcu_expedited boot and sysfs parameters that cause the kernel to substitute expedited primitives for the normal grace-period primitives.

Way too often, I have a machine that exhibits some kind of crappy behavior. The CPU looks wedged in the kernel or it is spending way too much system time and I wonder what is responsible. I try to run readprofile. But, of course, Ubuntu doesn't enable it by default. Dang! The reason we boot-time enable it is that it takes a big bufffer that we generally can only bootmem alloc. But, does it hurt to at least try and runtime-alloc it? To use: echo 2 > /sys/kernel/profile Then run readprofile like normal. This should fix the compile issue with allmodconfig.

2007-10-17Add vmcoreinfoKen'ichi Ohmichi-0/+10
This patch set frees the restriction that makedumpfile users should install a vmlinux file (including the debugging information) into each system. makedumpfile command is the dump filtering feature for kdump. It creates a small dumpfile by filtering unnecessary pages for the analysis. To distinguish unnecessary pages, it needs a vmlinux file including the debugging information. These days, the debugging package becomes a huge file, and it is hard to install it into each system. To solve the problem, kdump developers discussed it at lkml and kexec-ml. As the result, we reached the conclusion that necessary information for dump filtering (called "vmcoreinfo") should be embedded into the first kernel file and it should be accessed through /proc/vmcore during the second kernel. (http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0707.0/1806.html) Dan Aloni created the patch set for the above implementation.

2006-01-04[PATCH] driver core: replace "hotplug" by "uevent"Kay Sievers-7/+7
Leave the overloaded "hotplug" word to susbsystems which are handling real devices. The driver core does not "plug" anything, it just exports the state to userspace and generates events. Signed-off-by: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
2006-01-04[PATCH] add uevent_helper control in /sys/kernel/Kay Sievers-3/+22
This deprecates the /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug file, as all this stuff should be in /sys some day, right? :) In /sys/kernel/ we have now uevent_seqnum and uevent_helper. The seqnum is no longer used by udev, as the version for this kernel depends on netlink which events will never get out-of-order. Recent udev versions disable the /sbin/hotplug helper with an init script, cause it leads to OOM on big boxes by running hundreds of shells in parallel. It should be done now by: echo "" > /sys/kernel/uevent_helper (Note that "-n" does not work, cause neighter proc nor sysfs support truncate().)

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
